CC303 Classical Mythology Spring 2008 Prof. P. Perlman Suggestions for Preparing for Quiz The Quizzes will NOT be cumulative. Thus, you should focus on the material from the last Quiz of Exam to the most current lecture material. In the case of the first Quiz (January 31), this means the material for Lectures 1-4. The Quizzes will consist of short answer questions: e.g. fill in the blank, matching terms between columns, short identifications.

Instead, you should focus on making sure that you can identify all of the terms listed on the Study Guides under the heading “You should be able to identify these terms” and all of the terms on the Lecture Outlines.

Unformatted text preview: thing. Why did we bother to spend time together thinking about and discussing the term? EXAMPLE: labrys : Name for a double-bladed axe. One of the religious symbols of the Minoans. It is possibly associated with male authority (the divine male consort or male political authority).

The word is not Greek in origin; the fact that the Greeks borrowed it suggests links between the Minoans and the Mycenaeans. If you are able to identify all of these terms you should be in good shape for whatever kind of short answer questions you encounter on the Quiz. If you have questions, contact me, or Miriam, or Taylor. Please do so in person (check office hours on the Syllabus). We get cranky when flooded with email. The Quiz will be the first thing you do in class on Thursday. Be there on time!...
